Dearth of Men

Isaiah 13:12. “I will make a man more precious than fine gold: even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.”

The destruction of all things, including human life, will be so great during the Day of the Lord that the population, especially of men, will be reduced to such an extent that one man will become more precious than gold.

Of course, I had to look up “the golden wedge of Ophir.”  I love learning things I didn’t know before. It has to do with the amazing riches sent to King Solomon by this obscure country. You can read about it here.

The main point today is not the history lesson, although I find that of great interest. The point is that God’s anger and judgment are to be feared and dreaded. He is a God of holiness and justice, and in His Day, He will call the earth to answer for its rejection of Him and His people.
